Hemina is a Progressive Rock/Metal band formed in 2008 by Douglas
Skene. The band's interesting take on Progressive Metal combines the
sonic extremities and musical virtuosity of the genre whilst
preserving the artistic edge, forward-thinking philosophy and dynamic
subtleties found in Progressive Rock.

In July 2010, Hemina released an EP entitled 'As We Know It' featuring
3 tracks from their upcoming album 'Synthetic'. The band followed up
with a series of shows within Australia which has gained them a
substantial following and critical acclaim.

Hemina's debut LP 'Synthetic', a 79 minute cinematic concept album, is
now here and ready to be released with impressionistic digipak art and
the rich sound that the band have become known for. The album will be
released in October 2011 and accompanied by a national launch tour,
with shows featuring a stellar cast of Australian progressive metal
acts, including Voyager, Arcane and more.

With pristine sound mixed and mastered by Tommy Hansen at Jailhouse
Studios (Redemption, Circus Maximus, Seventh Wonder, Jorn, Helloween),
the album is a powerful, emotional adventure perfectly segueing
track-by-track into a sumptuous and inviting world of Progressive
Music. Not one to rest on their laurels, the band have already begun
work on the follow up to 'Synthetic' entitled 'Venus' which shall be
released some time in 2013.

Hemina's sound is a fine balance of mood, texture and dynamics in
order to sculpt a vast musical journey for its listeners. The band
experiments with intricate harmony (both vocally and instrumentally),
thundering rhythms and intense appreciation for melody which
encapsulate the attention of the listener. With 'Synthetic', Hemina
shows their willingness to take the band's burgeoning Australian
success onto the world stage for the first time.

Hemina's ‘Synthetic’ album launch tour will include the following dates:

8 October 2011 - The Bald Faced Stag, Sydney NSW
15 October 2011 - The Amplifier Capitol, Perth WA
27 October 2011 - Surfers Paradise Tavern, Gold Coast QLD
29 October 2011 - The Hi-Fi, Brisbane QLD

11 November 2011 – Central Club, Melbourne VIC
12 November 2011 - The Basement, Belconnen ACT
